Straub International announced two changes to its management team. Randy Veatch recently accepted the role of senior vice president and chief operations officer for Straub’s, a leading agricultural equipment dealership.
Larry Straub, CEO, said Veatch’s 25 years of industry experience bring added depth to Straub’s executive team.
“He has extensive knowledge in the machinery businesses, as well as sales and management,” said Straub. “We’re looking forward to his contributions and guidance as we continue providing the best products and service to our clients.”
Veatch graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1986, with a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural economics, and from Wichita State University in 2014, with a Master of Business Administration. He and his wife reside in Hutchinson and will continue to manage Straub’s Hutchinson location in addition to his new responsibilities.
Additionally, Dan Boswell has accepted the position of regional service manager for all of Straub’s five locations. Straub touted Boswell’s previous experience that he will bring to the team.
“Dan brings a unique perspective to our service department with his background in not only managing a service department, but also as a former successful small-business owner himself.”
Boswell was a service and parts manager in the construction equipment industry for eight years, and owned his own service-related business for 13 years. Beginning in the Burlington, Colo. area, Boswell has more than 34 years’ experience in the service industry.
He and his wife reside in Great Bend, and he also will continue to serve as service manager for that location in addition to his newly announced responsibilities.
Straub’s is a locally owned dealership with locations in Great Bend, Salina, Pratt, Wichita, and Hutchinson. The company represents CASE IH, as well Mahindra, Polaris, Great Plains and Crustbuster.
